The fundraising campaign for the American Lung Association in honor of our late founder Gin Goon has been completed at the end of June. We have raised, including the matching fund from corporations, an unprecedented record of $5,333 dollars!
Thank you all the donors for their generous contributions and everyone supporting the fundraising by joining the hikes in fundraising month of May.
In recognition for our fundraising work over the years, American Lung Association is planning to add Gin Goon's name to the NYC Donor Wall of Remembrance at their Northeast Chapter office in midtown. A memorial event for the dedication will be held this Fall. We are very appreciative for this honor and would like to share this good news with you all.
